Sparkly Christmas Tree

This was a fast simple card but it has a lot of impact!  I made it following a sketch this week on RAQs Challenge.  This is one of those cards that wakes you up and says "wow I, didn't remember that cut being on that cartridge".
This card is 6 1/2 x 5 inches and the Christmas tree is cut at about 6 inches.  It is cut from Lyrical Letters cartridge.  In Design Studio I added a small box for the trunk and welded it to the tree.  I cut this from red paper and glittered it with Martha Stewart garnet glitter.  Yesterday I buried covered in glitter.  I had my fan on when I glittered Oops!, not too smart LOL.  I then mounted the tree on a piece of paper from My Mind's Mine Christmas tack that I got on Sunday at Michaels.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you like this simple fast Christmas card.  Anything fast tihis time of year is great.
